Self Portrait with Mask

Leave a comment

I finished my self portrait today, wearing a mask from the Halloween box (almost time to break those decorations out for real!) It’s an oil painting on wood panel, 9’x12′. Still using Liquin instead of Galkyd, and I really miss the Galkyd! My Liquin is almost gone, though, and I ordered a big bottle of Galkyd, so that should improve future paintings.

Here’s the grisaille underpainting:

And the finished painting:
